Why Do I Need A Website?
02 May 2017
Unless your a business not interested in growth for your brand, you need to have a website. Bill Gates wasn’t kidding when he said:“if your business is not on the internet, then your business will be out of business”
Lets see some benefits of a website:
1. Works all the Time: Nobody wants to work at 2am, but some people like to shop then. With a website you can sell your products all the time, not restricted to a 9am – 5pm. Even when your sleeping your website still promotes your business. It can be better than passing out your business card to thousands of people.
2. Increase revenue: An E-Commerce store can mean a dramatic increase in sales, especially when you factor in additional customers who are not restricted by location. Your online presence also supports customer service, marketing campaigns, brand recognition, client relationship building and almost every other element of the revenue stream.Even if you don’t sell your product online, your website gives you the opportunity to distinguish your company or organization to your client.
3.Helps you stay competitive: Studies show that once a consumer has an idea of what they want or need, they start researching, and 72 percent of them go online to find informative material, reviews or testimonials. If you are not there, they will reach out to your competition.
4.Offers Information: In Nigeria search is the most popular online activity, a website helps potential customers and clients learn more about your products and services.
5. Your Customers expect it: Today’s emerging generation has never known life without a digital world of connection. If you don’t have a business website, today’s tech-savvy (and impatient) customers may look elsewhere. Customers today judge a company’s credibility based on their website, so if you do not even have one, that means zero credibility.
